Copyright literacy survey review

  1. 1. Jane Secker and Chris Morrison LSE and University of Kent COPYRIGHT LITERACY SURVEY REVIEW
  2. 2. COPYRIGHT
  3. 3. COPYRIGHT !? GET ME OUT OF HERE
  4. 4. WHAT IS COPYRIGHT LITERACY & WHY DOES IT MATTER? I think awareness of copyright and the intellectual property of other people is central to the 'information, media and data literacy' element of the digital capabilities framework. Understanding one's own copyright and IPR also comes into 'creation, innovation and scholarship'. And I don't think it's too far-fetched to argue that in an academic setting, copyright has implications for academic identity. Helen Beetham writing about digital capability in 2015 Jisc (2015) Six Elements of Digital Capabilities
  5. 5. SOME KEY DATES 1993 Copyright recognised as important in the electronic environment: Follett Review of Libraries 1999 CLA launch first scanning licence to allow digitisation of readings via transactional clearances 2004 Oppenheim and Woodward survey of copyright advice and guidance in UK higher education libraries 2005 first blanket licence from CLA to allow scanning from paper and copying digital originals – with reporting 2014 significant amendments including new exceptions to Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 and orphan works licensing scheme
  6. 6. METHODOLOGY
  7. 7. FINDINGS
  8. 8. FINDINGS
  9. 9. LIS EDUCATION AND CPD Topic / Issue LIS Education LIS CPD Overview of UK copyright legislation 68 48 Recent updates to the law 6 67 Copyright exceptions / relation to licences 43 23 Practical application of copyright law 34 30 Digital copyright / copyright and the internet 33 20 Creative Commons / copyleft 31 15 Fair dealing 27 16 Specific Licensing schemes e.g. CLA, ERA 27 15 As per previous answer 0 41 Exceptions for libraries 24 15 Open access and institutional repositories 23 15 International copyright law 20 14 Licensing of digital resources 20 13 How to protect IP 16 17
  10. 10. EDUCATION & CPD: WHAT SHOULD IT COVER? General copyright awareness / copyright duration/ using images /fair dealing and quotation / digital content rights / creative commons / understanding terms & conditions & re- use licenses / implications of non-compliance (but in a good way using carrot not stick)…. Whatever it is it needs to be clear and as jargon free as possible to stop people glazing over.
  11. 11. EDUCATION & CDP: WHAT SHOULD IT COVER? General copyright awareness / copyright duration/ using images /fair dealing and quotation / digital content rights / creative commons / understanding terms & conditions & re- use licenses / implications of non-compliance (but in a good way using carrot not stick)…. Whatever it is it needs to be clear and as jargon free as possible to stop people glazing over.
  12. 12. FOCUS ON POSITIVES Copyright education should: …reflect the fact that most LIS practitioners have significant exemptions and freedoms as regards copyright. Much existing copyright education is effectively written from a commercial rightsholder perspective and tends to be unduly dogmatic as a result.
  13. 13. FEEL THE FEAR I think copyright can seem daunting if you are not familiar with it, and by encouraging an awareness at an early stage, this would reduce any anxieties to follow. I find that people are often scared of copyright…
  14. 14. EMBEDDING IN LIS EDUCATION I have just finished my MSc and we had limited information on copyright law provided, the little I know I know because colleagues have shared it with me. I don't remember copyright issues being addressed at all in my Postgraduate course and I think this was unfortunate.
  15. 15. KEEPING UP TO DATE …I still need to know what I am allowed to do and for whom, especially as digitisation has changed the field completely. We need updates on how legislation has changed and what a difference this makes to our work.
  16. 16. TRAIN THE TRAINERS Encouraging more general awareness of copyright issues so librarians/info specialists can educate academics about complying with copyright law. Also practical awareness for students’ creative work and using [copyright] material in their own work.
  17. 17. SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
  18. 18. Should institutions have a dedicated person or should everyone do a bit? COPYRIGHT SUPPORT MODELS
  19. 19. EMBEDDING AND MEASURING COPYRIGHT LITERACY
  20. 20. CONCLUSIONS AND FURTHER RESEARCH • Need for more cross country analysis • Librarians likely to compare favourably to other professionals? • Need more qualitative data to investigate • How copyright literacy is effectively embedded • How to develop a effective approach to copyright literacy • Understand the role of the generalists vs dedicated copyright professional • More engaging training
